Shareholder Meeting Follows the Company’s Successful Hearing with the Nasdaq Hearings Panel
Miami, FL – February 13, 2023 – Globe Newswire – Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMFL) (“Smart for Life” or the “Company”), a high growth global leader in the Health & Wellness sector marketing and manufacturing nutritional foods and supplements worldwide, announced today that the Company filed a definitive proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) scheduled on March 15, 2023. The Special Meeting is being held to vote on various matters, including to effect an increase in the total number of authorized shares of common stock of the Company and to effect a reverse stock split of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock.
If approved by the stockholders and implemented by the Company’s board of directors, the reverse stock split is primarily intended to increase the price per share of the Company’s common stock to enable it to comply with the Nasdaq continued listing requirements. Each shareholder’s pro rata percentage would remain unchanged. Additionally, the Company believes increasing the per-share market price of its common stock would make the Company more attractive to a wider range of institutional investors and brokerage firms otherwise restricted due to share price requirements.
“We remain committed to growing Smart for Life toward our stated objective of $300 million in revenue through our high-growth M&A initiatives and it is critical for the Company to preserve its Nasdaq listing to achieve this goal,” stated Darren Minton, Smart for Life’s Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to execute on our plans, and we believe these measures will set the foundation for successful value creation as we carry out our proactive acquisition strategy, targeting accretive cash flow positive companies and driving the long-term growth of Smart for Life.”
The definitive proxy statement and other relevant materials will be mailed to stockholders of the Company as of the record date of February 3, 2023. Investors and security holders will also be able to obtain these documents at the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov.
